    Working for TIBCO.

    Senior Engineer Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsA fast pace company that rewards their employees for their contribution to the company. It is a large company that allows for many career opportunities but still small enough for the executive management to know you.

    The engineering staff is very dedicated to their work but still take time to discuss problem no matter how busy their schedule is.

    Bleeding edge technology.

    Multi cultural environment.

    Great cafeteria in the Palo Alto office.

    ConsThe company has tremendous upside but needs to clearer present its long term vision to the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent company to work with

    Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
    Palo Alto, CA

    ProsI have been party of Tibco Software for past 5 years. Starting my career with Tibco gave me opportunity to work on the most advanced technology products (MDM, CEP, SOA, etc). The support of management for exploring new things has been tremendous. Tibco always provides the platform for young as well as experienced folks to focus more on innovation apart from the usual release work.

    ConsTill date I haven't felt any downside working with the great organization.

    Innovative and entrepreneurial

    Marketing (Current Employee)
    Palo Alto, CA

    ProsSmart people, great company spirit, incredible promise for the future. This is a company who's best days are ahead of it. It's led by a brilliant founder and CEO and that is pervasive throughout the organization.

    ConsThere has been a heavy focus on engineering and sales historically, and marketing has not been heavily invested in until now. This has made it so that the brand of the company is not as well known as some others in the valley, despite the fact that the people and company is far better than most.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to drive the entrepreneurial excellence that has made this company so great for so many years

    I've been working here a month, and intend to work here for the foreseeable future.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat salary, I felt it was a more than fair evaluation of my abilities. Nice people, nice CEOs to work with. The benefits are outstanding, everything I wanted and more is included in my standard benefits package. GREAT coffee/espresso machines (I'm a huge coffee person). My manager is considerate of my time, I choose my own hours and am not required to work overtime or weekends. The company is growing, and what with the varied industries it serves, the future of the company is very solid.

    ConsNone yet! No company car?

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    TIBCO is one of the most customer-driven and sales-oriented companies I've ever seen.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Palo Alto, CA

    ProsVery focused on results and there's not a lot of process overhead. Understanding who the movers and shakers are is critical to getting your job done. High quality of personal integrity in the people I work with.

    ConsThere's pockets within the company where there's a lack of deep expertise and bench strength in executing at the level a $1 Billion company should be. The top 3-4 execs really run the company with a very tight leash. Not necessarily bad, but different than what I'm used to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open with sharing financial performance data for the product groups, so we can have a better sense of which products are pulling their weight and which areas additional investment or disinvestment makes sense (we all need to understand the business better).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
